About Me

I specialize in adult cardiac surgery and surgical treatment of end-stage heart and lung failure. I’m dedicated to improving the care and health of my patients. The physiology and care of patients with cardiac issues can be complex and often requires a multidisciplinary approach. At The Ohio State University, I have plenty of opportunities to collaborate with colleagues in addition to finding new research avenues that allow me to be on the cutting edge of cardiovascular care.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as following college and professional sports.
